Accreditation provides added assurance to students and prospective employers that our degree programs meet the highest professional standards.

All licensure programs offered by the Department of Teaching, Curriculum, and Educational Inquiry (formerly Teacher Education) are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Such accreditation demonstrates that teacher candidates have been thoroughly assessed before they are recommended for licensure.

Primary Education, National Association for the Education of Young Children
